Welcome to Duke!
Whether you are a first year student away from home for the first time, or returning as an upperclassman and ready to explore your dining options on West, you might want some tips about how to eat well on campus. Donât worry, weâve got you covered.
Think of healthy eating as having three components, timing, balance and mindfulness.
1. Timing. Remember to eat regularly throughout the day; you canât expect to get through your busy days if you donât have energy (and food is energy!). A common mistake many students make is skipping meals or going too many hours without eating. If you have the First Year Board plan donât forget to eat a small meal or snack to keep you going between meals.
